I hope you will give space in your
paper for a reply to an artiolo headed
"Tho St. Louis Demands," in which
my namo, as a oandidate for congross
is mentionnd. I will go before tho
people on tho St. Louis demands, and
am trilling to go into a joint discis
sion, with any man in tho state on tho
merits of the St. Louis platform, es
pecially tho ownership of railroads.
No one can form any just concep
tion of tho railroad question without
looking into tho extent and wealth of
these vast corporations. Undor the
iniluenco of pools and combines they
abolish completely all competition and
fix tho rates. They lovy all tribute
on commcrco that tho articlo trans
ported will bear short of prohibition.
With tho power of money to corrupt,
they use their money to purchase all
legislation in their favor both stato
and national, and they do not stop at
this. They purohaso the decisions of
tho courts both high and low; thoy
still go further than this, by purchas
ing tho iniluenco of citizens, high in
position, to publish letters in the lead
ing papers to justify their legalized
robbery, whioh is groator than that of
Sicily by Vcrris, that of Romo by
Crassus, or that of tho Iudeas by
Hastings, and not stopping at this,
thoy purchaso tho most popular daily
and weekly newspapers of the country
and thoreby control public opinion
politically and sooially.
When wo consider one hundred and
sixty thousand milos of railroad in tho
United States, which is a greater
length of mileage than all the railroadB
in the balanco of tho world and when
we consider that they oarry tho mate
rial for more than one hundred and
thirty billions of commerce annually
and when wo Author tako into con
sideration that tho tonago of this ono
hundred aud sixty thousand miles of
road is annually more than ono hun
dred and seventy millions of tons
more than all the tonage of all tho
water navication of the entiro world, we
can then form some just conception of
the power, iniluenco aud wealth of
the monstrous corporations.
It is proper in this connection to
look into ono moro orimo of tho cor
porations Tho real oost of all theso
ono hundred and sixty thousand
miles of railroad is about two and ono
half billion dollars, they havowattored
this stock up to about nine billions,
thus fixing, charging and collecting an
outrageous freight upon moro than
seven thousand millions of watered
stock, independent of an exorbitant
rate of freight charged upon tho
actual capital investpd in tho
roads. In order that tho
reader may form so mo just conception
of the abovo statement it will be
propor for mo to mako reference to
Poor'sManuel and the consus report of
the United States for 1880; by doing
so it will bo Been that prior to that
dato and boforo tho corporations pooled
their issues and consolidated their
general interests, and at a timo when
they wore corapoting with oach other
as a business enterprise, that all the
roads running west from Boston, New
iork, Baltimore and 1'huadclphia,
oharged, at thoir own will, ono cent a
ton per milo on all through hauls and
ono and a sixth for all short hauls.
Tho consus roport for 1880 shows that
the average freight rato for the Unitod
States was less than one cont a ton
per milo. They also show that the
roads from St. Louis to Galveston
prior to tho general combination, and
whon sho was competing as a business
transaction, only charged sevon tenths
of a cent a ton per mile on a through
haul from oity to city. Tho oonBus
reports and Poor's Manuel show that
at tho above datos, and tho abovo
named rates 55 por oent of the gross
earnings of theso roads was net profit.
Thin most unquestionably settles the
question as to whether ono cent a ton
por mile is a paying rato or not.
The most authoritative statistics
show 45 per cont not on the gross
earnings of tho principal Toxas roads,
and these roads have their stock
watered from 50 to 60 per cent., whilo
many of tho roads in tho older states
have their stook watered up to 80 and
85 per cent. Ono oompany in Now
York when it cotnmenocd business
was worth $150,000 and in a low
years it was worth $200,000,000.
For the purpose of moro fully
portraying to tho people tho danger of
the power of tho railroads and to show
the neoossity of destrovinc this
collossal power, I will refer to tho
messago of Gov. Hogg. This is an
ofiioial ddoument and no ono can
question the correctness of the mattor
contained in it. Ilo states that tho
Texas roads contain moro than
450,000,000 of watered stock, and that
thoy aro adding 40,000,000 of
Hotitious stook annually for tho peo
ple to pay dividonds on in every
oommotclal transaction they make
He estimates this to bo more than one
half of all tho taxable property of tho
stato inoluding tho value of the roads,
and $33,000,000 more than all tho
land values of tho ontiro stato. It is
further eoen that Texas has given to
her railroads in lands and other values
moro than 40,000,000 aoros of land,
and a largo amount of this land they
till hold through fraud in
transferring it from ono person
to another so as to avoid
alienating it until in many instances
it has become very valuable Tho
wholo amount of it has probably
yielded them moro than $8 per aoro.
In the light of tho above statements
no ono can deny that tho Texas roadB
havo roceived donations whioh were
more than suflioiont to build and
equip them. It might bo said the
roads aro the gifts of tho people to tho
It is a well known fact that they
pool their interest with other corpora
tions and clcot whom they please to
fill tho various ofnccB from president
down to bailiff, and diotato every lino
of law, both national aud state, in
their own intorest.
A glanoc at the above statomont of
woll-known laots will show that thoso
corporations are more powerful than
the government and the only way to
savo tho government from being over
thrown by theso corporations is for
the government to own and operate
tho roads in the intorcst of tho wholo
Tho framors of the St. Louis plat
form demands would rob no one, nor
would they confiscate ono dollar of
pnvato or pubho property. Noithor
would they interfero with tho rights
of any oitizen or class of oitizons, but
they would proteot tho people from
corporations that havo usurped powers
not delogated to thorn oithor by tho
stato or tho constitution of the United
States. By purchasing all tho roads
in tho United States, not as private
property, but as public property,
reoognizing that the vatious compa
nies only hold chartered rights in said
By referenco to tho testimony taken
by tho oommittce of ways and means
in oongress during the investigation of
the interstate commerce bill. Tho ao
tual oost of all tho roads is not moro
than S2,s00,000,000 after eliminating
tho watorrd stook from them. Ac
cording to tho same testimony tho
peoplo are paying moro than $000,-
000,000 annually in the shape of
froights to pay dividends on this fic
titious stook, besides paying a just rato
on tho $2,500,000,000 of real cost.
Now thero is moro than one plan by
which tho government can purchaso
and pay for the roads. Ono is to issue
$2,500,000,000 of full legal tenders
and pay the roads spot cash for the
property. This would bo $850,000,
000 Iobs thnn $50 per capita, whioh
amount every ono is now contending
for as a necessary por capita circula
tion. So ovory ono will sco that it will
not get out the required volume of
money. The present freight rates if
continued tour years would
bring back to tho govern
ment the $2,500,000,000 paid for tho
roads thoreforo tho government might
reduoe tho present froight rates three-
fourths and contmuo it for sixteen
yoars and this would bring baok tho
2,500,000,000 the result would bo
that the government would own tho
roads and at the end of sixteen yoars
would havo collected enough from
freight to pay their entiro oost, and
tho oost of operating them, and a
corporation that threatens tho very
existence of tho government and tho
liborty of the pooplo would bo put out
of oxistonoe. After this the govern
ment oould run tho roads at tho oost
of operating them, and if this gov
ernment can do this as cheaply as
other governments, and I think she
can, wo will pay 30 ocntB for rfding
100 milos on a first class oar, and
50 oents for hauling a balo of cotton
from Groesbeck to Galvoston, and
everything else in proportion.
These corporations, as everyono
knows, has rode rough shod over
every law to regulato thoir oharges
and defy the states to intorforo in any
way with thoir action to protect tho
peoplo. Consequently tho only hopo
is tho ownership of tho ToadB.
